Oh my God.... Mega Man X6...?
X Series, by Dr. Cossack on 28 April 2001 at 0:00

Yes, it looks like it's true... We got Mega Man X5 in February, and Capcom is already working on X6!? You can see the line-up of Capcom games for this year E3 here. Mega Man X6 is listed under the Playstation games (yes, it's on the PSX!). There's no official word from Capcom yet about this. I wrote to them so they can confirm / deny this rumor. I'll tell you as soon as I get the answer.

Upcoming Mega Man EXE update
Battle Network Series, by Dr. Cossack on 23 April 2001 at 0:00

I imported from Japan some figurines about Mega Man EXE: Battle Network. Each figurine is in a box, and comes with a card about a character and a little candy. This provides me with some more information about the game and the characters, so expect an update of the Mega Man EXE section very soon!

Capcom Newsletter
If you are suscribed to the Capcom Newsletter, you got it yesterday in your e-mail inbox. On it, Capcom announced that Mega Man EXE will be released in July 2001. They also named the game Mega Man Battle Network. Can this means that they are dropping the EXE? Only time will tell...

Many things
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 14 April 2001 at 0:00

New affiliate and links
I added a new affiliate: Dustman's Domain. It's a small site for now but it will grow in the future. I also did some changes in the Links pages, to add some websites and other details. On another note, I changed the links to the Megaman Outpost to go to the real URL: I should have done this before... is dead
The Mega Man PC Website was a part of the network. Justin Cass was getting too busy with other projects, so is closing down. I removed the link to his website.

I changed the title screen of the game today, to put it entirely in English. It's looking great now! Check it out!

Website problems...
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 6 April 2001 at 0:00

I've had some server trouble yesterday, causing many problems. What was the cause? My account was completely full.... The consequences? All CGI scripts were broke: the message board wasn't working, all updates are gone and MegaChess wasn't working. I've got a temporary fix, but I'll need to delete some files. I'll check into this in more depth this evening, but the MP3 archive will probably be scaled down until I upload the files somewhere else. This means: if you want a MP3, get it now! MegaChess is partly working: room 2 is the only one working for now, I'll fix the two others this evening. On it's side, the Message Board is completely working.

Also, all e-mails sent yesterday were lost (yes, again). You tried to contact me? Please send your message again, as I didn't got it!

Note that I'll restore the list of the past updates here today, so you'll see if you missed anything.

Minor updates
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 6 April 2001 at 0:00

I corrected the MegaChess scripts, so the 3 rooms are fully working again. Also, the readme file for Mega Man 5 for PC was not there, so I uploaded it (thanks Kevin). All old updates are there too, they just came back without warning... Go figure.

Everything should be fine now. Let me know if something else is not working properly.

More website update
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 4 April 2001 at 0:00

Main page update
First, I forgot to change the banner at the top of this page (banner for my domain). It's now fixed, and looking way better than the old one. Also, do you see those blue headers for each update? It makes it even easier to separate the different updates, and it's so pretty :-) Before, I always found it confusing to read this page.

Mega Man 5 for PC download is back!
That file was lost during the website revamp in January, but I was able to upload it again, so you can try the Demo 1 of Mega Man 5 for PC if you want!

New affiliate
I added Life of Wily as a new affiliate. It's not really a Mega Man site, but it's a daily comic using our favourite characters. Check it out!

SNK = Dead
Gaming, by Dr. Cossack on 3 April 2001 at 0:00

From GameSpot: "Citing debt of 38 billion yen, SNK has filed for bankruptcy. Aruze Ltd., which previously acquired an interest in SNK, began closing branch offices and lightening its inventory in March. SNK had filed for debtor's exemption under the Conciliation Act but decided it would file for bankruptcy before the exemption hearings could take place."

So SNK, after leaving the International market to stay in Japan, is completely dead in Japan... Many people hopes are turned toward Capcom, which was a great partner of SNK, to get what's left of their business to continue some of their games. I'll let you know if any future word is heard from Capcom about this.
